Advanced Trauma Life Support:

The American College of Surgeons Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) Course emphasizes the rapid initial assessment and primary management of the injured patient, beginning at the time of injury and continuing through initial assessment, lifesaving intervention, reevaluation, stabilization and transfer to a trauma center. This course consists of pre- and post- course exams, core content lecture, interactive case presentation, discussion, development of lifesaving skills, practical laboratory experience and a final performance proficiency evaluation. Upon completion of the course, physicians should feel confident in implementing the skills taught in the ATLS course. (Advanced Trauma Life Support for Doctors, 10th edition, 2019).
